How about orange Jello?

I'm not usually a big Jello fan, but I got inspired this week after looking at crazy pictures of Jello molds from the '50s. (Thanks, Diane.) And I do like orange, as well as anything that's kind of kooky. So I have to make these Jello oranges sometime. Not Martha's recipe with play-by-play is here, and Food Network's version with vodka is here.

I make these for the kids parties. I stick a toothpick with a sail shaped piece of rice paper to make a ship. They love them! I also add raspberries to raspberry jello and mandarin oranges to the orange. So cute!

I found these jello oranges on Not Martha last summer and have been waiting for an excuse to use them for the longest time...still waiting!

Was first introduced to these at a party a few months ago and I fell in love! They were the vodka-infused ones you refer to in the post and they were a huge hit with both sexes. However, I'd like to try them in orange because unfortunately ours were made with red jello which consequently turned all our mouths a rosy shade of drunk.

Great Idea. At the first look of them, I thought they were orange slices.

Hi, Coming out of my lurking place to say: Love your posts but this one inparticular because I have kids that love jello jigglers and I have friends that love Jello shots. Thanks for the tidbit on how to make these.
